Because c’mon–you think those characters with the hearts of ice, the unbreakable wills, the huge tendency to bully DON’T jam out to the mushy-gushy on their iPods sometimes?
I am of the firm opinion that villains, just like everybody else, have a love song they just can’t help but…well…LOVE!
This will be a consistent new feature on my blog–probably posted every Monday. Because there are a LOT of villains, and a LOT of love songs, out there to match… and I’m bound and determined to do it!
If you like this meme, feel free to post up your own–just be sure to link back to mine!
Villainous Love Songs
(The Grisha Trilogy)
Now, I KNOW this isn’t technically a LOVE song…but! It’s a SELF love song, and The Darkling…is all about himself. SO. It works.
(The Darkest Minds Trilogy)
Because HE CAN DO THAT, YOU KNOW! He’s just that awesome. And creepy.
“Your comrades are your pressure point, this girl in particular,” his father said, nodding toward the window as if nothing had happened. “Why would I waste my time with a seven-hour-long procedure when I can make you talk right now?”
Victor Westervelt II
(The Vinyl Trilogy)
Except he’s not thinking about LOVE, he’s thinking about his love for THE MUSIC–which keeps everyone in their places, and in their places GOOD. So…change every “love” to “Music” and you’ll know what I mean. (trust me, it works!)
And there you have it!
Villains…and the love songs they don’t want anyone to know they rock out to.
If villains in your world had a favorite love song, which would it be? Let me know what you think of this post below–or feel free to jump in and post your own pairs!
Until next time, happy book-ing!
